We have been having a hard time getting our little girl to eat well. I know this is normal for toddlers (She is 17 months, so I guess a toddler.), but I still stress out about what she eats. We also still (!) use fruit and veggie purees to supplement her meals because we are worried about how much she eats.
We are trying to make some changes and gradually phase out the purees. I'd love to do so by her 18 month appointment. So, when I was making her lunch today, I thought that maybe she would like her food on a plate instead of her high chair tray. Then I remembered Muffin Tin Monday! I decided to try offering some different foods in a muffin tin.
Here is her lunchtime tin!
Contents: applesauce muffin, hardboiled egg, cheese cubes, Triscuits, Spaghetti-O's, and strawberries
The verdict: She was very excited to see her muffin tin. It took about half of the meal for it to get dumped over...not too bad! She ate up the cheese and the applesauce muffin and tried the Spaghetti-O's, Triscuit, and eggs. The only thing she didn't try was the strawberries.
I had a lot of fun with this and hope to participate again. For more ideas, check out Muffin Tin Monday!
